Little Green Books are designed to get your little one excited about going green. Important topics such as recycling, replanting and endangered species are brought to life through fun & engaging characters. Little Green Books “plant the seeds of eco-friendly consciousness at an early age so that we can grow a generation of earth-friendly readers.”
Not only are Little Green Books reinforcing green living through words, the books themselves are environmentally friendly! Personally, I find that to be a great extra touch to a wonderful series!
A few environmentally friendly features:
- Printed with vegetable or soy based ink
- Made from recycled materials
- Books are 100% recyclable
- Most books are made with FSC recycled paper
My kids were provided with 3 books to review. We read Don’t Throw That Away, My First Garden and The Adventures of a Plastic Bottle countless times over the past few weeks.
Don’t Throw that Away teaches children to think about reusing items instead of throwing them in the trash. This is a lift-the-flap board book made from 100% recycled material. Parents of little ones know that lift-the-flap books are always a hit and are a fun way for children to interact with a story.
My First Gardenis about a mother and daughter watching a vegetable garden grow. This cute story reinforces colors and shows kids some of the vegetables they could grow in a home garden. An extra special feature is a handle cut-out for your child to carry the book around. We kept losing our copy sine LuLu would carry it all over the house!
The Adventures of a Plastic Bottle is perfect for older children. Monkey Boy told me several times, “Wow, that’s interesting.” The book reveals recycling from a whole new perspective. The story is a series of diary entries from the perspective of a plastic bottle. It’s a record of “his” journey from the refinery plant all the way to becoming a fleece jacket. I even learned something with this book!
I loved that the books include a glossary of terms so that parents and children can learn together. Moms and dads need help with v occasionally too! Additionally, you will find downloadable activities on the website to share more lessons with you children.
